We’ve featured quite a few Michael Kors watches on this blog already and I must admit that I still kind of crave one even though I haven’t bitten the bullet yet and invested in one. But seeing how lovely Wendy’s watch looks on her wrist with a little bit of arm candy, makes me want to buy one even more. But $250? That’s quite a commitment and I’m usually not the type who spends much on accessories like watches or jewelry.

Topshop Chunky Strap Watch

If you’re like me and like the look of the Michael Kors watch but don’t want to spend so much money on it, here’s a great alternative I found at Topshop. Their chunky strap watches – available in gold or silver tone – have a very similar look yet retail for only a fifth of the original’s price.

Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?

I’ve always loved the classic watch designs of Michael Kors and heavy chain link bracelets have been my weak spot lately. So imagine my delight when I discovered this gold MK watch with a chain-link bracelet. Such a pretty accessory and not too painfully expensive at $250!

I’ve always liked Michael Kors watches and have been wanting one for years, but they became so overly popular in the last two years that I didn’t really feel like being one of the many trend sheep following this hype. However, Kors has recently created a fabulous new charity capsule collection called “Watch Hunger Stop” where every sold watch equals 100 meals delivered to children in need. Apart from being absolutely in love with the gold-turquoise color combo and the world map face, I love the idea that by gifting this watch (e.g. for the upcoming christmas), you are also doing good to the world. Perfect gift idea, don’t you agree?

Michael Kors has joined forces with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to fight global hunger. For every sale of the 100 Series watch, WFP will deliver 100 meals to children in need. The support so far has been overwhelming. Thanks to you, we have already delivered over 1 million meals around the world.

Alessandra Ambrosio always seemse like one of those superhumans to me. She’s a super successful supermodel, mom of two, has a gorgeous face, a smokin’ hot body and an enviable sense of style. Ale certainly hit the jackpot in the lucky gal department. But while I can’t turn my readers into sexy Victoria’s Secret Angels, I can definitely help them achieving Ale’s fabulous blue and white dip-dye look on a budget! Do you like my budget-friendly take on Alessandra’s casual chic blue and white summer ensemble?
